Our Places

The Brewery & Tours

Come see where our beer is made and how we do it.  Located just down the road from our restaurants, the brewery is a fun place to see the beer-making process in action.

Take a tour, sample plenty of beer, and afterwards stay for some fun and games in our brewery taproom.  Sit and relax on the patio, or maybe pick up a game of cornhole!

We have merchandise for sale at the brewery that includes pint glasses, t-shirts, and coffee mugs.

Cheers!

The Smokehouse

Aviator SmokeHouse opened in March 2011 as a complement to Aviator Tap House located across the street. We have always loved smoking meat in the backyard and decided to bring our homegrown recipes out for everyone to try. We feature smoked wings, house made onion rings, smoked pork, St. Louis style smoked ribs. All of our food is made in house and most products sourced locally. Be wary of our wing sauces they can be much spicier than others. Our Imperial MocoLoco sauce is made with the Ghost Chili Pepper which contains approximately 1 million Scoville units of heat! Our other sauces MocoLoco, Crazy, Monster, Buffalo, BlackMamba and Aviator are all created in house using beer and fresh local ingredients.

The TapHouse

Aviator Tap House opened September 2009 to provide brewery fresh beer to Fuquay Varina and the surrounding area! We have the state of the art micromatic draft beer system with glycol cooling in the beer lines. Our cooler is optimally located and serves all the beer at a perfect draft temperature of 47F. Serving beer at this temperature allows your taste buds to explore all the different flavors we create in the beer.

The building is the old Varina train depot. The history of the building can be traced back to 1903. The building used to be located right on the tracks behind the building. It has moved from its original location…but not too far away. The lower left side of the building used to be the telegraph office for the town.

Today the historic Varina train depot houses an African mahogany bar that spans 38feet. This is a true beer drinkers heaven with lots of wood and hearty plank floors. You owe it to your self to spend some time consuming a fresh brewed beer and bathe in the history of Varina at Aviator Tap House.

The New Brewery

Jan 2018 We will start the planning of a large brewery expansion to increase capacity on a new 5-acre site with the addition of a restaurant (yep another one!), bar, and larger still to complement the one on the way to the brewery now. Hoping the new brewery has a helipad. We are adding a new 4-vessel 60bbl brewhouse fully automated. We will have:

Drive thru coffee
Pub bikes that hold 16 folks to drive through town on tours
Concert venue
Distillery
Restaurant
4 bars
Mezzanine overlook level
Much increased production capability

BLACKMAMBA STOUT

6.5% alc/vol SRM: 20 IBU: 11
